    I found this box in my fathers attic. I have no idea how he came to have it or if it's a real military box.

    It has what could be initials and 2 sets of numbers which read as follows: 755 AP 33041 along with an anchor and rope. I have also attached the photo.

    Does anyone know what this is relevant too? Or what it would have been used for?

  2. I think that the AP possibly stands for Admiralty Pattern. Could be a box that some equipment was delivered and stowed in.

    Unless it's got fittings or wooden mouldings inside, it's probably just a 'Box, Naval generic stuff, for the use of'.

    Someone suggested Anti-Personnel. Does anyone know what the numbers would refer to? 755 is an air squadron although perhaps this just refers to the box number.
  6. Just a wild guess:

    AP 33041 would be the equivalent to today's NSN
    755 would be the item serial, or key, number?
